Micco C. Emarthla
”1967 - 2019”
to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion,
to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy,
not rich; to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly,
to listen to stars and birds,
to babes and sages, with open heart,
to bear all cheerfully,
to all bravely await occasions, hurry never.
In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and
unconscious grow up through the common.
This is to be my symphony.
Micco C. Emarthla,
age 52, of Grove, OK went to be with his Creator on Monday, January 6, 2020 at his home.
Micco was born on April 11, 1967 To Walter and Saundra (Sweeden) Emarthla in Tulsa, OK where he grew up and graduated from Tulsa Central High School. After graduation, Micco attended Oklahoma State University and received a bachelor�s degree in Engineering.

Micco was proud of his Native American heritage and was a follower of the Longhouse beliefs. He was an avid outdoorsman, loving sports, spending time at the creek and rock collecting, mowing and chopping wood.
